Looking for SUPER simple portal for LAN Party

  • I'm having a hard time finding a template that will allow my to have people hit the portal, Capture their IP/Hostname, Input First, Last, Gamer Alias and agree to "Not at Fault" wordage. I'm wanting to associate an IP Address and a person in the event someone's computer is crippling (storming) the network. (Had this problem at the last LAN and it took a VERY long time it was out of 200 peeps)

  • LAYER 8 Netgate

    There is no ability in pfSense captive portal to capture such information. You will have to code it yourself.

    You might be able to leverage giving each party participant a voucher code and tracking it that way.

  • Added to that, a captive portal should be run on its dedicated interface (VLAN, or more simpler : OPT1).
    The hostname is communicated by the device when DHCP handshaking takes place, but know that a device doesn't have to communicate one.
    Also note that IP's, MAC's and host names can be fakes because user (== read : visitor) editable.
